Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE IT!
I initially bought this to compliment a couple of matte polishes I have. I didn't even think about using it on my regular polish collection, but was curious...I tried it on a few colors and LOVE the effect!! It tones down the shine sparkle (but still letting a hint show) .sort of giving it an eggshell type finish... I feel like Ive doubled my colors/inventory!
Most Helpful Critical Review I can't get it to stay matte! :(
This polish does look spectacular on any color or any design....for about two days. I have used this product several several times thinking something will change but on about the third day the matte has worn down and there is a glossy sheen on every nail...short of re-applying every 2-3 days, I just can't get this top coat to stay matte no matter what I do. PLEASE tell me it's not just me....

Not impressed OPI fan from Maryland
Sorry but, I'm not as generous with the stars on this as everyone else. Yes, it does go on matte as many others have said, but should it get 3 stars just because it's only able to do that?! A top coat isn't just for looks/aesthetics but also function, it's supposed to protect the color and aide in lasting/durability. I've painted my nails since I was a child and I'm in my early 30's so I've used a fair amount of brands and colors, never have I ever seen a top coat lift color from a dried nail; I thought the issue was that I used a black of a different brand so maybe it was the mismatch, so I went and bought an OPI black and it did the same thing. Even more, it doesn't matter how long you let it dry the first day you practically can't do much because it will smudge or lift in someway, even if you touch it and it seems dry...so this isn't something that you can do when pressed for time. Then, another weird thing about this top coat, is the fact that it doesn't really chip off, but rather, it rubs off or even washes off. Overall, this is a huge miss and major disappointment given that it's OPI! I'm harsh in my review because it's OPI and we have come to expect a certain level from them which is why many of us are willing to pay more for it; however, this performs worse than the old wet n wild polishes, Revlon, or those little bottles of polishes that were super cheap (can't remember name). Basically, this isn't something I will purchase again from them and I am highly suggesting to anyone reading the reviews prior to buying to look elsewhere this isn't worth it, trust me.
I Wouldn't Buy This Product Again
Sarina from Livonia, Michigan
Don't get me wrong, the product is exactly as billed, it creates a lovely matte finish. However after trying it for the first time, I realized I'm not a fan of the matte finish look.
Sarah from Concord
Works well for what I was looking for.
I like it.
K from Florida
Dries insanely fast. you will see the texture no matter how smooth the polish went down. The polish I used thinned out at the cuticle when applying the top coat. You will have to go over spots to ensure no shine.
Will not be a smooth application
Nail color saturates applicator
lexica10 from USA
As everyone else has said, this top coat doesn't last long and is prone to chipping. The glossy top coats provide chip protection but this does nothing but provide a matte aesthetic. Moreover - even if your nails are completely dry before applying, the color (especially a dark one) will get all over the applicator brush and stain it. Now my entire bottle is tinged red.
Hands down the best!
Madam Librarian from Franklin, Indiana
Very rarely do I ever finish complete bottles of anything but I'm on my third bottle of this top coat. I LOVE the matte look. This product is fantastic and quick drying!
Does what it is meant to do
Mercy from Chicago, IL
The nail polish looks great when using dark nail polishes. However, I will agree with others in that it does not last very long. In two days, my nail polish has begun to chip from the top. This could be because I did not apply it to all of my nail (totally possible) or that the top coat does not last very long. I am giving it 4 stars because it does do what it says it is meant to do.
I would not buy this product again. Nails chipped first day.

usually love opi. but this sucked.
Matte DOES NOT HOLD UP
britt from las vegas
i love opi products but def not this one. The matte effect was no longer matte after a few days. I have to keep reapplying nonstop to make them stay matte because after the few days my nails are all shiny again
Great For Dark Colors
Jo from Ann Arbor
It works okay with lighter polishes but it really "shined" when it came to darker tones. I personally don't like glossy dark polishes, so this top coat is a must for me.
Initially worked great, but did not last
ZG from Detroit
When I applied the matte coat, it went on well, as expected. But the matte did not hold up well by 3rd day. It started showing some slight grey or white finish. Eventually matte finish just left nails. It seemed to happen after I washed dishes.
It does what it says

It seemed to take two coats before all the shiny spots were gone
Falls apart like my dreams
Shaun from Spring, TX
If you want your nails to look like they're made of cheap broken glass in just a day, this is the top coat for you. And no it doesn't look like crackle polish. Used this multiple times and it cracks the polish all over the nails every time.
Not worth it
Katie from Alabama
It does turn your polish matte, but only for a little while. By the end of the day it has worn off and the polish is shiny again "/
OmNomZombie from Arizona
This item is meh. While it DOES make any polish matte it chips and cracks so very easily. I probably won't be purchasing again.
Love this polish!!!
Sarah H from Baxter Springs, KS
Love using this polish on polish strips! Works great!

When you are going for a matte nail look, this is the product to buy!
Uma from San Ramon
I really like it. It is easy to apply. Perfectly did what it says!!
I would never buy this product again
Cami from Washington D.C
One day after using this product, the matte wore off and my nails are now shiny. Also, I have cracks all over my nails and my manicure is ruined. I will never use his product again, and now I know to use other brands.
ab from illinois
Love this a lot. Immediately makes your nails matte. I only suggest you wait a while for it to dry because it does make you think that it's dry when it isn't and you can easily end up ruining your nails.
Love this product
Hannah from Bel Air, MD
Truely is matte. Doesn't take long to notice. Last long.
ooooo lil fancy boy
Caitlin Caitlin from PA, United States
Use as a topcoat for matte affect on any base color. Issa nice boy. Boy is lil expensive though. I don't know if it's worth the price but I already have it and it works very well.
DB from Smyrna, TN
It worked great
Takes forever to dry and chips
Kate from Virginia
It does its job and makes any color look matte but this top coat takes FOREVER to dry. An hour and a half after applying it, I still couldn't touch my nails without messing them up and moving the polish around. Also, my nails chipped the same day I painted them so this top coat does nothing for the longevity of your manicure. Save your money
